Hard moves past the overhang on the right-hand side of the face gain the break. Then step right to climb the arete on its left-hand side. Gear is minimal.

This is well undergraded. A yellow alien in the pocket/eye offers the only protection on the crux, which involves a dyno/slap off 2 poor slopey crimps above a nasty landing. Hard moves, which one of our team felt could be low 6b (and I'd agree with them), lead to much easier climbing above.

I shouldn't comment cos I couldn't do it but I tried hard for a while. I tried it two ways, one as above and one via a strenuous undercut, neither which I could pull off. I wouldn't give it E2 though as I fell off twice on gear in the crack and was fine. I will go back and work out the sequence but if anyone has any advice I've not ethics...

its not 6a and you don't need to slap for the break...

Reckon E2 5c, although there is reasonable gear low down. Great route though.
